For seven years, the Portrait of Britain awards organisers have invited photographers to turn their lenses on the diverse and constantly changing nature of UK society.
The annual event, run by the British Journal of Photography in partnership with the advertising firm JCDecaux, attracts thousands of submissions, which are then edited down to 99 images by a panel of experienced industry figures.
This year’s winning portraits include famous faces such as David Attenborough and Grayson Perry, and ordinary members of the many communities that make up the country.
Envisioned as an exhibition for everyone, it has photographs gracing digital screens on high streets and bus shelters, in shopping malls and in train stations in major cities across the UK. A hardback book featuring the 200 shortlisted images will also be published by Hoxton Mini Press.
